SAN FRANCISCO (AP)  — The San Francisco District Attorney's Office has charged a 37-year-old abortion opponent with felony stalking and misdemeanor trespassing after he allegedly targeted a physician at home and barged into their office at a women's clinic.

Aaron Jonathan Hurley pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that also included misdemeanor obstructing freedom of access to a clinic and vandalism.

District Attorney Chesa Boudin's office said the Los Angeles resident is affiliated with the group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising.

Hurley and three women allegedly barged into the women's clinic, filming and chanting the doctor's name.
